Windows 2003 server loses network connectivity
Posted on 2011-10-05
Our company uses a server (which is also a DC and the ONLY DNS), which for some reason looses network connectivity randomly throughout the day. users are disconnected from the networked drives and you cannot connect to the server via RDC.
i dont know if it is total loss of connection, but it seems that way, one thing that throws me is that it is only ever down for 30 secs or so and every time i ping the server it resolves straight away and then is connectible again, so i am not sure if Pinging it resolves the issue or if it resolves itself quickly enough that the ping works anyway.
The task manager is no help, i have been going through that and cannot find any errors that seem remotely connected to it.
any help would be much appreciated, this has been going on for months!!!
